WTB - $$$$ for catalytic converters , cats

I pay $80 per pair or $40 each for factory Mercedes cats.

I pay by check or paypal, your choice.
Send your payment information with your cats, when you send them.
I pay within 24 hrs of the same day that I receive your cats.

Send cats to:
M.M.
8181 NW 91 ter suite 7
Miami, Fl. 33166

No gutted or internally broken cats. Broken studs, bad flanges a-ok.
You can cut them out of the piping if you want.
The more you cut, the cheaper it is to ship. I just need the cats.

Or , if you cut away all the piping , some will fit into a USPS ‘flat-rate” box &
Cost you only $8.95 from anywhere to me. Free “flat-rate” boxes at your post-office.


You can also send me all other factory cats, & I will pay you top dollar, for your cats... I can only price non Mercedes cats when received, as there are 1,000s of different factory cats made. I pay $7 each for pre-cats

Probably recycling the platinum out of them. It's become a pretty big business to the point where people are cutting them off cars and trucks.

You can get over 200 bucks for some of them. It is getting popular to jack up a car and steal the cat(s).

Guys, please read my earlier post. They are being recycled for the platinum that's in them.

People have been killed for the stuff before. A scrap hauler trucker in Chicago was shot and they stole his trailer full of scrap metal.

I'm getting about $120 for just one ML pipe. I got $150 for an old BMW cat once too. It's ridiculous how much people pay for the stuff.

I just want to throw up to think of the cats I just crushed with the rest of the car: knowing that there was platinum/rhodium/palladium in there and not wanting to take the time to "save" them...

Take a look on ebay and see what used cats are selling for...

Gal at work had her SUV Cat stolen in broad daylight, they use electric portable chop saws or something, it must only take thieves a few seconds.
Police said they average three reported stolen every day, often in Parking garages or Safeway lots, that sorta place. I'd like to rig one up with dynamite and blow one of them to pieces
